On Jan. 31, 2019, PP Braces and a group of 13 dental volunteers, dispatched for Ivato, Madagascar for dental voluntter service.
There were 6 dentists and 7 assistants. 2 dentists are also rotarians form other clubs.
 

The group was able to treat  368 patients with 540 extractions, 16 cleaning and 88 cavities filled.
Madagascar is a country with dramastic demand in healhcare service, esp. in dentistry. people with a average income of USD 1.25 per day, could hardly afford to visit a dentist. It was estimated that there was less than 500 dentists in a population 24 million.
There were 2 prices for extraction - one with anesthesia and the other one without anesthesia. Please imagine how suffering to have tooth removed without anesthesia.
 
  

Madagascar, former colony of France, became independent on June 26, 1960. The island is 18 times of Taiwan, but the population is only 1 million more than Taiwan. So it is lessly populated.  The capital is Antananarivo and the common languagage is French and Malagasy. The most attractive product is Vanilla.

In our service , we were able to spot a 2 months old girl with Cleft Lip. We came to know the the HIS foundation from Hong Kong will send as operation team going to Madagascar for volunteer  surgery for a yearly base. We could have the baby put on waitlist once she has achieved the critierion for surgical repair. But the family has to pay for the transporation from the province to the capital, living cost for one week and the medicine. It was estimated to be USD 55.  so , PP Braces donated USD 500 from the International Service fund of our club for the benefit of other cleft patients for surgery.

To show our care about the humanitarian aid before the International Woman’s Day, the RC Taipei spouse committee organized a service event to Harmony Home Taiwan on February 27.  Harmony Home Taiwan is now a healthcare and shelter which takes care over 150 non-Taiwanese children and their mothers from unlawful residents like migrant workers with various difficulties.
After a pre-visit to the site, we decided to serve by bringing along a children’s program for 1-3 years old kids which they have NEVER had such an experience before in that small room.
 
It began with a video briefing of Harmony Home at 10am and a warm greeting from the founder Ms. Nicole Yang. We donated 8 big cans of formula milk for children before starting our shelter service.
 
Lucky us a kindergarten principal Ms. Lee Ju-Nan 李如男 came to lead the children program.  At first most kids came asking for the big hugs. Some of them were still in bed. After a few games they all went crazy and were running around with laughters and happy faces. At the end we gave our special thanks to Ms. Principal for her kind contributions then helped with the lunch-serving. Before leaving we spent some time with the cute little infants upstairs.
 
               
 
It was such a heart-warming and meaningful event. We’d like to come back again and make it as a regular service if possible.
Hopefully RC Taipei can do something more or different on this issue in the future.

Dear fellow members 
 
Jan 27th we had a  fantastic year end lunch at  Spring Resort in Beitou.
It was great to have long time no see families Sean, Cathy and their 4 lovely kids, Henry families and Stephen! 
We took the walk to the nearby mountain trails to witness the hot spring sources and a 110 year old temple in the morning. It was well worth the early getup on Sunday!
Then we had the tasty meals and drinks prepared by the Spring Resort Hotel in the private room arranged by hotel owner, a great friend from Eternity. Each of the members gave very warm and meaningful story regarding Rotary life during  lunch, that was the best moment the whole day! 
Most members enjoyed the hot spring SPA after the lunch - it's the best activity in winter times! 
Thanks to P Jason and support from many members for the event.
